    Shucks! Yer makin’ me blush now, and Thunder is probably blushin’ so hard he’s afraid his posts will come out in pink text. :)

    Thanks, from the bottom of my heart.


    I chose to respond directly to this post, because I think it’s right on the money. This is about showing respect for others, and the expectation of being treated respectfully by others.

    We do not all agree about everything. Some of my favorite people here are people with whom I disagree at times, but I still respect them, and know that their opinions are sincere and well intended, even if they differ with my conclusions. Mutual respect is a powerful force for good.

    One thing that amazes me about the Internet Age, is how we routinely find ourselves communicating with people we are unlikely to ever meet, and who live literally halfway around the world. Online, I’ve met people from Nepal, all over Europe, Australia and made friends all over the U.S. There are guitarists all over the world that I share something in common with, and meeting such persons online has truly enriched my life.

    Due to health reasons, I'm pretty much homebound. COPD, arthritis, and The Old have taken their toll. It's hard to breathe without a mask, and damn near impossible with one. This place is my connection to the outside world, to other musicians, and to you crazies in general. We share a love of Gretsch guitars, but of other instruments as well. It's more than rockabilly and British Invasion, it's a general love of music (---and pets). I've always said that I don't play because I want to, but that I play because I have to. I still learn something every day. My day isn't complete unless I spend some time here. Thank you all for that.

    I can't help thinking that "Animal Control Officer" is a perfect work experience profile to serve as a forum moderator! :D

    Life's too serious, too sad, too scary at times. Gotta lighten things up.

    Yes, our moderators are the best. Both of them when having to correct/discipline have done so with gentleness and respect. Not that I would know this from personal experience. ;) Right Synchro?? :)

    Absolutely! Nothing wrong with a little levity, or a lot for that matter. Thanks to the mods for not kicking me off this place.

    I like my notes shaken, not stirred! And I feel at home on this forum, even if I can't be here too frequently. For many years I was an admin for several guitar forums, so I can appreciate the effort our fearless leaders put in to keep this joint hummin'. Thanks dudes!

    There is a good reason that this is a bright light in a dark world, we have @Synchro, and @thunder58 keeping the batteries from wearing down, and the bulbs from burning out.
    The advice is excellent, the helping hearts and hands are tremendous, and the friendship is second to none.
    Thanks for being the glue that helps hold us together.

    Being an admin on a guitar site is akin to herding cats or being pecked to death by ducks.
